Hola! Salut! Grüß Gott! The Modern Foreign Languages Department remains one of the most forward-looking departments at Mill Hill, developing the European Section 1967-2006 (working on projects with partner schools all over Europe) and Section Bilingue in 1967-1990. French, German and Spanish are currently taught in the department from beginners up to GCSE and A Level (AQA specifications) and there remains a thriving programme of exchanges and educational visits across to all three countries; work experience placements are arranged for 6th Formers.
The department is well resourced (a brand new computerised language lab opened in 2007) and manned by enthusiastic native or near native speakers. We also employ a language assistant in each of the three languages to offer extra conversation lessons to exam year groups, as well as constantly updating our diverse cultural programme to entertain and enhance language study – our European Week activities each year are enjoyed by students of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
We strongly encourage independent learning in the 6th Form by making use of the facilities at the Institut français, the Goethe Institute and the Instituto Cervantes and Canning House. Come and visit us on the Lower Ground Floor of the Favell Building to see for yourselves!
